    Top Places to Retire to In Australia

    When you are ready to retire then you often start to think about relocating. By the time you reach retirement age your children are generally grown and you are left bumbling around in a house that is far larger than you need, and you are tied to maintaining that property and that reduces the amount of time you have to spend enjoying the golden years of your life that you have worked so hard to reach.

    Best Cities in Australia to Retire to

    Sunshine Coast, Queensland

    This location is just a one hour drive from Brisbane. It has the feeling of a remote location with all of the peace and serenity but it is still close enough to great roads and transportation so you can easily be in the heart of a larger city, or visiting people who live in other locations.

    Coolangatta, Queensland

    This area has everything a person of retirement age could dream of. It has the entertainment to keep you from getting bored, and there are classic film shows, live dancing, live music, and affordable dining establishments. You also get a view of the Tweed River which provides you with a calm and relaxing place.

    Merimbula, NSW

    This is located on the south-west coast of NSW. The peaceful stretches of beautiful shoreline and the magnificent beaches provide you with the serenity and beauty that every retiree wants to have in their life.

    The national parks in the area provide great places for outdoor enthusiasts to spend their days. There are plenty of fine shops to explore and discover, leisure facilities to enjoy, dining establishments and clubs for nighttime entertainment

    Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

    The coastal villages and hamlets of this area are breathtaking, peaceful, inviting, and just what anyone over the age of 60 will want to have in their everyday life. There are orchards placed on the rolling hills so the visual aspects of the area are stunning and the heady aroma of the blooming fruit trees is indescribable.

    You should also consider:

    • Huon Valley, Tasmania
    • Kadina, SA
    • Echuca
    • Tweed Heads
    • Yankalilla
    • Esperance, WA

    You should take a little time and travel to all of the wonderful places that Australia has to offer and see which location is going to suit your needs and provide you with the most enjoyment in your final years.

    You also need to find a furniture removalist company that can help you move out of your current to the new retirement location you choose. Moving is strenuous work that takes organization, determination, physical stamina, and physical strength to do. It is also stressful and can be frustrating, but professional furniture movers can help you relocate your items without all of that stress.

    You want to hire a company that is experienced and will handle your items with loving care. You also want a removalist that is familiar with the location you are relocating to and that has a great reputation for getting people and their belongings safely to their new homes.

    Your moving specialist can provide:

    • Less stress
    • Less physical strain
    • Help packing & unpacking
    • A pleasant moving experience

    Our trained and reliable removalists can pack your belongings and furniture for you meaning it’s one less thing for you to worry about.

    We are experienced moving in all conditions, and can efficiently move you to your new home in the heat while you stay indoors and enjoy the air-conditioning.
